4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The 37.5cl bottle actually says: Cuvee Chapeau lamic > Oude Gueuze < . I wonder if it is the same as this one. Pours gold with a nice stable head. Smell is typically de Troch lambic, old lambic. Taste is lemon, horse, tart, great! Man, am I surprised with this geuze! This one really can compare with the great guys. Too bad De Troch doesn’t make more ’Oude’ lambic/geuze stuff! Going to buy some more bottles of this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Certainly not the best Oude Geuze at all. But certainly the best beer from brewery De Troch. Maybe that say something about this brewery. This beer is sour with notes of lemon and green apples. Dry aftertaste. Nice, but there is better!
